Let's Help Save The Church of God In Christ?!??!
Readers, this thing with Dr. Earl Carter has really rubbed a lot of church members the wrong way and they are not staying silent about it. The comment posted below was posted to social media minutes ago by a young unhappy COGIC member, who is not happy with what has happened with Dr. Earl Carter.
Folks are also questioning why was Bishop Carlton Pearson an invited guest when Dr. Earl Carter wasn't even allowed a hotel room?
One year ago today, this Man of God preached the Word of God... And one year later, look at where we are, Since when do we apologize to the World for what we preach to our OWN people? - Denzel Washington can curse up a storm in his movies, but remain COGIC. - "Bishop" T.D. Jakes(My great-grandfather's nephew) can call Ruth and Naomi Lesbians and come to COGIC. - Queen Latifah can BE a lesbian and be COGIC. - Tonex can perform in homosexual clubs and come to COGIC(West Angeles) - Magic Johnson can call people in California during the election, and tell them to vote for Homosexual-"marriage". - J.D. Husband can be accused, by HIS OWN WIFE, of molesting children and being a homosexual, and doesn't get kicked out of COGIC until he confessed.
All the Pastors, Bishops, Elders, Ministers, Youth Pastor, etc. that are accused of some manner of sexual assault every year, and all COGIC does is pay off their victims(Even G.E. Patterson frown emoticon ). Somebody has to care enough about the church to say something, What happened at the Convocation last year and Earl Carter's letter this year are separate issues. The Presiding Pope(since the office is so untouchable, that we can't even disagree with him without being ostracized), never gave Earl Carter a chance to recant his statement...AND GENERAL BOARD MEMBERS HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED THIS!!!!
I'm not in Blake's camp or Carter's either, this is God's house! And with all the pedophiles, homosexuals, whoremongers, adulterers, and much more, you think we'd have more concern for our church and the public's opinion of the church than the statement "Bleeding from the butt"...What about the statement "take the dung and put it in your children's faces"?; now I'm no woman, but every woman I have talked to said that that statement was NOT offensive, even if it was, the SIN is what should bother us.
We defend Bishop Blake like God appointed him, He was ELECTED NOT SELECTED. There have been presiding bishops before that have not been re-elected...Excommunication in our church should not be based on whether or not you criticize the Leader, but if you disagree with God's Word(In word or action).
I found COGIC nearly 6 years ago, and fell in love with it; but this disgust me, the plethora of Court cases that I have read about child molestation in our church(In my own jurisdiction!!)...but nobody cares that my view of this church is being destroyed, I have to either turn off my brain and act like I don't see what I see, or say something till somebody agrees. I AM CHURCH OF GOD IN CHRIST! But I worship Jesus, not fallible men. #SaveTheChurchofGodInChrist
